(Harlan) The Harlan football team starts off the 2012 season by taking on a team that handed them one of their three regular season losses in 2011. Denison-Schleswig will travel to Harlan on Friday night. The Monarchs upset the apple cart so to speak last season when they stunned Harlan in overtime during the 2011 season opener.
Harlan Community head coach Curt Bladt denies that this is a redemption game. He says one of the main factors in improving over last year's campaign is physical play. That's been a staple of Harlan football over the years and something coach Bladt is trying to instill in this years team.
2012 brings a new quarterback to the Cyclone's huddle. Adam Juhl has won a three-way battle for the starting job. Brandon Bjoin will be the backup and also see time at wide receiver.
